I enjoyed myself when i got to go out of the house and walk around looking at the scenery around my house.
It was raining because of the rain i had to postpone some of the trips to some places. And sometime I could not go there as i had to go out with my family so i had to manage my time carefully.
I would have done better in the little guilin, because it rained i could not go there but if i had the chance to do it again i would want to go there and take some pictures of the scenery there

Also known as Xiao Guilin among the locals, the Little Guilin looks similar to that of Guilin in China - a granite rock sitting within a lake. It was originally a disused granite quarry. In fact, the name "Bukit Batok" has been suggested to be derived from the noise made by the blasting in the granite quarry that now form the natural surroundings of Little Guilin.
Together with Bukit Batok Town Park and the neighbouring Bukit Batok Nature Park, it occupies 77 ha of land in the planning area of Bukit Batok. It encompasses Bukit Gombak, Hong Kah, Brickworks, Hillview, and also Bukit Batok itself. Before being designated as a park, in 1984, the Housing and Development Board had originally intended to fill the quarry up and build a road on it. However, it was converted to a pond instead when it was realized that the existing quarry had rugged granite outcrops and a contrasting backdrop of green hills that gave it a pleasant look. Soon, the surrounding areas were also beautified and made accessible by placing granite blocks on the retaining walls and adding footpaths, lights and seating.
In 1996, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) conceptualised the Development Plan Guide for Yishun and Bukit Batok, which proposed the use of the surrounding parks to enhance the residential landscape for the area. It also proposed links between the Town Park and Nature Parks, and eventually linking them via park connectors to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Sungei Pandan.
The Bukit Gombak Stadium is located in Bukit Batok, Singapore, and has a capacity of 3,000 people. The stadium was home to Gombak United FC in the S-league before they left the S-league in the year 2002. Thereafter, the stadium was converted to a Centre of Excellence for the Singapore Athletic Association.It is adjacent to the Bukit Gombak MRT Station.
Bukit Gombak MRT Station (NS3) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the North South Line in Singapore. The station was opened on 10 March 1990. It was part of the Branch Line before the opening of the Woodlands Extension on 10 February 1996. The station is in Bukit Batok and is located near Bukit Batok Road and Bt Batok East Ave 5.
